Attack of the Clones
GTK and Metacity theme by jurialmunkey

This is an experimental theme that I've been toying with for a while. Finally got it to an acceptable point where I feel like I can release it. Due to the experimental nature, there will probably be some bugs. Please don't hesitate to leave a comment with a link to a screenshot showing any bugs you find. Some I may have just missed or are in programs I don't use, others may not be able to be fixed.

I hope you enjoy it.

Extract the Attack-of-the-Clones.tar.gz from the .zip
Open up Appearance preferences, Click install and select the .tar.gz file you extracted.

To install for Root programs (e.g. Synaptic), in a terminal run:
sudo ln -s /home/<insert your username here>/.themes /root/.themes

I'm using the Droid font family at 8pt. The Metacity is designed for 8pt Bold Droid Sans or 8pt Bold Ubuntu. Other sizes might have issues.

Requires Murrine 0.98 (included in Maverick)

Nautilus Elementary is required for the breadcrumbs.

If you don't wish to install nautilus elementary, and would prefer to use GTK breadcrumbs, do the following:
gedit ~/.themes/Attack-of-the-Clones/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
Scroll down to the bottom of the file and replace the line
include "Apps/nautilus.rc"
include "Apps/nautilus-gtk.rc"

Programs With Known Issues
Evolution: Issues with the Headers on the Mail list, working on a fix.

Non-GTK-Apps (OpenOffice, VLC, Skype): These apps don't use the dark style as it was the only way to get them to a usable point

Pidgin: Issues with text colour in some parts, working on a fix.

Thanks to the code in the Atolm and Elegant-Gnome themes for teaching me a number of ways to fix issues in dark themes, and also Atolm for the scrollbar trough pixmaps and Elegant-Gnome for the infobar pixmaps.

Change Log
v0.2 :: Minor Evolution Fixes ::
- Fixed hard to read text in message preview window
- Fixed some spacing issues in the message list header icons

v0.1 :: Released ::

Magnificent theme. My only criticism is that the decision to go with light menus and panel makes it difficult to go with a monochromatic theme, as the general backgrounds are dark. Excellent theme overall though.

That emerald theme looks gorgeous too.

Hi!, awesome theme. but I need the blackened breadcrumbs for Nautilus Elementary. Where I can find them?
jurialmunkey's avatar
They are included within the theme. Do you have custom breadcrumbs installed in ~/.themes ? If you have installed a breadcrumb hack then you will have to remove it. Press ALT + F2, type: "gedit .gtkrc-2.0" (without quotes) and hit enter. Look for the line: 'include ".themes/nautilus/nautilus.rc"' and delete it. Then reselect this theme in appearance preferences.
